The perfect combination of serenity, healing and beauty. Estate home, Priv entry, bath, kitchenette, W/D + garage.
Come and reguvenate. It's peaceful here. Stay a while.
I'm sitting on the terrace watching it rain.
The air smells wonderful.
Wheel chair accessible.
This studio has all the comforts of home: Kitchenette (fridge, sink, microwave, table + 4 chairs) toaster over available upon request. Outdoor kitchen by pool area with grill and two burners if you want to cook.
It also has a Recliner, W/D, TV, & wifi.
Fish off the dock or have coffee or coctails out there. Spectacular sunset views nightly. There is garage space for your car and a private entry. It is quiet here and you have access to our 3 acres of manicured grounds with creeks, pond, & fruit trees.
Choose between King bed or two twins. Tell me when you book which you prefer so it can be just right for you when you arrive.
Minutes from down town Mt Dora & Tavares. We are also a few minutes from Eustis. It is called the golden Triangle.
You'll find Villa Autunno clean & secure. This is the best of the best. Try us. You'll be glad you did. Read our reviews. We know you'll like it because people keep extending their stays.
See Central Florida at its best. We are on Lake Dora between quaint Mount Dora and Tavares (America's Sea Plane City). We are 50 minutes NW of Disney.
This ground level studio apartment is great for longer stays. It has a private entrance, kitchenette and garage to keep your car out of heat and rain. There are banana, grapefruit, lemon, key lime, avocado & fig trees. I like lots of flowers too. Have you ever smelled a trumpet flower after dark when they put out their best scents to attract pollination? Awesome!
Come and go as you like. You have access to our private dock, pool, BBQ, grounds and front terrace.
Explore 3 acres of manicured park like setting with creeks, bridges, pond, and fruit trees. Wetlands behind our property provide a quiet peacefulness and lots of birds. This is truly a tropical paradise. Interestingly enough there are very few bugs. I guess the breeze off the lake has something to do with that, or perhaps the birds are doing a good job of catching them.
I'm an artist so this house is full of all types of artistic experiments.
OK to entertain local friends on the front terrace.
Great space for sundown cocktail parties.
This studio apt has a recliner facing the TV just like home. WiFi.
Общение с гостями
I am available to guide you to the best restaurants and local events or you can just have dinner in your room. It's a really nice space for a longer stay. You view the garden as well. And there is a gliding double chair out front to sit and enjoy the view.
Mt Dora is about 4 miles to the left and Tavares is 1.5 miles to the right. Try the local restaurants for lunch and Goblin Market for dinner (lamb chops or fish) or lunch ( steak salad). Yum, I'm getting hungry writing this.
Local restaurants include Japanese, Irish, Italian, American, Indian, Saigon, German, Chinese, Mediterranean, Sushi and Mexican restaurants as well. In fact you could eat at a different restaurant for months here. The one that cracks me up is the Magical Meat Boutique! Go figure. I hear they do a great big English breakfast on weekends. My brother had the burger and said it was the best he ever ate. It had English cheddar, bacon and good meat. Try sharing one it was huge.

Weekend prices slightly higher. We have lots of festivals here some weekends and of course we have Renningers which is the biggest Antique and Flea market in the country. There is also a sea plane base in Tavares (Americas Seaplane City) and you can get a ride in a seaplane.
The Dora canal is another can't miss tour. It is a one mile long waterway with high trees lining the canal. With so many different kinds of birds it will amaze you. There are eagles, egrets, osprey, huge grey heron and black cormorants that open their wings to dry them and appear to be dancing.
We have alligators, and huge turtles and if you get to see the family of otters you are having a very lucky day as they don't come out for everyone.
Right now (January) you may get to see the small gators and they were born about 3-4 months ago.
Both Mt Dora and Tavares have trains that make a fun little trip around the area. Kids love it, especially when Thomas the train is here. I heard a little 3 year old boy hug the train and say, "I wuv you Thomas."
Donnelly Park offers free movies on weekends.
See (URL HIDDEN) for times.
Having additional guests is fine but I'd sure like them to quiet down by 11 pm. and gone shortly afterwards. There is sleeping for two plus a couch that opens to a queen bed. When that couch is made into a bed there is little room to move around. The loft upstairs is an office and has a desk. It is not a sleeping loft. Noisy children would not be good here as there is an adjacent room where there may be an older couple who does not like noise.
Having company over is fine as long as you clean up any mess made by them. A cleaning deposit of $100 to be made prior to any party or gathering will be returned when area used is clean and in same condition it was before use.
I am an artist.
I create encaustic paintings, jewelry, a line of greeting cards that are funny, inspiring, metaphysical and whimsical. I also make some mixed media pieces out of 1925 newsprint and encaustic paint with hand made papers. I teach "how to make earrings" and "beginning encaustic painting".
My husband is a retired mechanical engineer.
He has made parts for the space shuttle and the America's Cup boat races.
We have a few pieces here to remember those days.
You won't be sorry if you choose Villa Autunno. It is a really special place. The grounds have a big pond and creeks, fruit trees, Japanese bridges and of course the lake across the street. You can sit out on the dock and fish or watch the sun go down. Or sit on the front covered terrace with a bottle of wine or a pizza. It is just a quiet pretty place to live and we love it. The huge old moss covered oak tress lend a quiet peace to this place.
As to our hosting style: I will give you as much information as you would like to know and nothing more. I won't talk your head off or enter your room during your stay. Our motto is "Live and Let Live." Give us a try. You'll like it here, everyone does.
